A Conversation with Gisela Kreglinger

Gisela Kreglinger grew up on a family-owned winery in Bavaria, Germany where her family has been crafting wine for centuries. A theologian and author based at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, she writes about the history of wine-making, especially its place throughout the story of the Bible, and the spiritual experience and beauty of sharing well-crafted wine with others around the table. Gisela will be joining Dr. Scot Sherman in conversation about her new book, The Spirituality of Wine.

“I wept upon reading this book…”—Alice Canlis, Canlis Restaurant, Seattle

“This is a thoughtful, prayerful, wide-ranging book, reminding us on every page that spiritu­ality and gastronomy are inextricably linked.” —Alice Waters, Chez Panisse, Berkeley
